Character History


Nirand delivers news of Chandra's death to Mohinder. Both Mohinder and a man wearing horn-rimmed glasses are interested in Chandra's research.

Graphic Novel:Monsters

Mohinder's grandmother tells a young Mohinder stories of Kali, but Chandra refutes them; he believes in science over religion. A present day Mohinder goes to his father's place of employment in New York and views the cab in which his father was killed.

Don't Look Back

Eden McCain, Chandra's former neighbor, joins Mohinder in searching Chandra's research, which Mohinder believes was the catalyst for his father's murder. Mohinder listens to a message in which Chandra refutes Sylar's claims that his "hunger" was caused by Chandra.

One Giant Leap

Peter Petrelli tries to convince his brother of the valid theorems posited in Chandra's book.


Eden presents Mohinder with Chandra's ashes. Later, Peter jokes to Mohinder that they're both just cheap knockoffs of their fathers.

Better Halves

Mohinder takes Chandra's ashes to India.

Seven Minutes to Midnight

As Mohinder dozes off at the desk in his father's office at Chennai University, he has a vivid dream of his last conversation with his father. Chandra is arguing with his son, expressing how he believes his theories are correct. Mohinder replies it is becoming harder to "cover for him", referring that his theories are generating displeasure at the university. Chandra tells him he'll see who the fool will be.

Chandra's funeral

Mohinder's location suddenly changes and now he watches Chandra admit that his plan to go to New York City may be a bad idea after all. His wife tells Chandra that if he doesn't go then it will consume him. Chandra expresses concern that Mohinder will hate him for it. Chandra suggests that maybe he should stay for Mohinder's sake, but his mother convinces him not to.

Later, Mohinder has another vision of Chandra in New York City - a vision of Chandra's murder. Chandra is a cab driver, and his passenger smashes through the security glass.

The attacker grabs Chandra's head, smashing it against the glass window. In the mêlée, the killer breaks his watch. Chandra is killed after his neck is snapped.


Mohinder has another dream, in which he sees Chandra trying to persuade Nirand about Sanjog's abilities. The setting of the dream shifts and Mohinder watches a conversation he had with his father where he tried to offer his assistance with the research but was rebuffed by his father.

Later, Mohinder's mother tells him that she heard from Mira that he turned down the job offer and is returning to New York City. She tells him that Chandra didn't tell him that he succeeded in finding the evolved humans because he wanted Mohinder to live his own life. Mohinder tells his mother that he's going to find them and tell them who they are and warm them of the dangers. His mother worries about who will protect him.

Six Months Ago

Chandra tracks down Gabriel Gray at his watch repair shop. They discuss human evolution and he gives Gabriel a copy of his book, Activating Evolution. In Chandra's apartment, Chandra and Gabriel discuss running tests on Gabriel's brain, and Chandra notes that everything the human body does is controlled in the brain. Later, after running tests, Chandra seems doubtful of Gabriel's powers.

After Gabriel leaves, Mr. Bennet, whom Chandra telephoned earlier, arrives. They discuss their respective daughters, Shanti and Claire. Chandra confesses that Shanti's genetic mutation was the portal to his study of human evolution. He hopes that "no one would suffer as she did."

After Gabriel Gray murdered Brian Davis, he meets with Chandra again. He shows off his newly acquired power of telekinesis, and Chandra is quite surprised.


Mr. Bennet tells Mohinder that he knows about the list Chandra created.

The Fix

Mohinder tells Nathan about Chandra's research, and how it affects Peter.


Mohinder continues his father's research by contacting people from the list.


In a Montana motel, Mohinder tells Sylar (who poses as Zane Taylor) about Chandra's murder, and the unknown whereabouts of his killer.


Mohinder tries in earnest to continue Chandra's research. He remembers that Chandra identified Gabriel Gray as Patient Zero, so he takes spinal fluid sample from Sylar. He realizes the key to his father's research. Sylar tells Mohinder that Chandra used to confide things in him, including things about Shanti. Sylar says that Mohinder was always seeking approval from Chandra, but Sylar gave Chandra the stimulation he needed. Sylar calls Chandra a parasite. Mohinder attempts to avenge his father's murder by shooting Sylar, albeit unsuccessfully.

The Hard Part

Mohinder finds a photo of Chandra, his mother, and Shanti.
